For centuries, timber framing has proven itself as a superb structural building method. It has certainly motivated our hearts and souls to produce exceptional quality craftsmanship. This craft is executed at Northern Timberhouse
by people driven by values that are no longer widespread in our modern society. Each and every one of our structures reflects that fact.
Framing with heavy timber has been the core of our work since our company was born. In 1985, we were part of the small group that founded the Timber Framers Guild of North America. Ever since, we have been an active company member of the Guild and have participated in various Guild projects. Fueled by the generous willingness of all members to share information for the betterment of the craft, we have grown and improved in all aspects of timber frame construction.
Our uncompromising conviction that timber framing is the best way to construct was strengthened every time we completed a project and our clients thanked us not just for the structure but also for the improvement it brought to their quality of life.
Over the years, driven by our desire to improve our products, we have begun to place less emphasis on log buildings and more emphasis on timber framing. We still feel strongly that handcrafted log buildings deserve a spot in 20th and 21st Century building alternatives but we strongly advise careful consideration of all options before a decision is made.
